Willow Lake Prayer

Empty my body

Fill my bones with moonlight dancing on the water
Fill my heart with elder petals and cicada song
Fill my soul with fern fronds and feather

Let my blood be pine resin

May I tread gently as the rain softens stone
May I speak as the prairie grass sways
May I lie as the clover touched only by honeybees
